Dolphin experience

Beautiful seeing dolphins in their natural habitat , felt a bit sea sick on the way back though . Took our 23 month old with us and she was fine on the boat

We booked through the rep who visited our hotel. very professional throughout. Picked up at 830 and taken to Puerto Rico. We had a good hour out at sea and were delighted to see a pod of about 10 dolphins. I saw a whale and told the pilot where Id seen it, he headed the boat out to that position... More

We enjoyed this very much and would recommend it for all levels of snorkelling abilities. As long as you can swim and hold your breath for short periods of time you will be able to enjoy this experience.

We have been on a 2,5h hour trip with Salmon XI at the end of August and I am glad it was only 2.5h hours. The crew two Jose’s and Mario were nice and I can confirm we have seen dolphins and flying fish. We sailed up to 6 miles from the shore. But really it was a rough ride... More

Myself and my partner booked this excursion for €20 euros each it was something we never did before, so we wanted to try it out. The experience was okay, but as we got further out to sea the waves began to get VERY choppy and the boat was rocking everywhere. We stopped as we found some Dolphins, a little family... More

We got to see the back of whales (not that exciting!), and quite a large dolphin group, but stopping engines to watch whales caused a few people to feel sick. The ocean look very quiet near the shore, but 30 minutes away, waves will shake it a lot more! Fun and helpful captain and the crew, but heat and waves... More

I was a little bit sceptical at first, not expecting it to live up to expectation because it was so cheap (it was around 30 euros per person for a few hour trip) but I couldn't have had a better day. It was magical, sitting on the front of the boat in the gorgeous sunshine. Apart from swimming with dolphins... More
